How to read someone’s mind? 6 tips to read ANYONE’S thoughts!

Published on April 22, 2019 at 8:30 AM

It sounds like straight out of a superhero or sci-fi movie: Reading someone’s mind and knowing exactly what the other person is thinking or feeling. The truth is that you don’t need to be a superhero for this to work: you simply need to know what you’re doing and practice consistently.


Ideally, to get the most accurate results, we would have already spend a reasonable amount of time with this person we are trying to understand through mind-reading. That way, we can more easily tune into their personal vibration and grasp it better. It also helps if you can make strong eye contact with the ‘subject’ while practicing mind reading. The saying goes: “The eyes are the window into the soul.” If, however, you are not physically with this person and so you are not able to spend time with them or make eye contact, do not worry; as you can still figure out what they are thinking and feeling.


1. Open your third eye

I want to start off with a broad, general tip: Practice towards strengthening your ajna chakra abilities. Or, as it is more commonly known: Open your third eye. Developing your third eye chakra is beneficial for many, many reasons. Some of which are your improved ability to visualize, harness intuitive feelings, receive psychic information more easily, connect with other souls more effortlessly… The list goes on. I will soon release a more in-depth blog post on how to open your third eye, so stay tuned. For now, I want to share this: Focus on your third-eye, the spot slightly above the place between your two physical eyes. While meditating, focus on this spot intensely until you feel it tintling. Keep bringing awareness to it and notice how, after a while, you will feel more aware and conscious of this chakra. Envision, if you’d like, a purple beam of bright light shooting into and out of this area on your forehead.

2. Strengthen your visualization skills

As mentioned before, being good at visualizing is a key skill not only to read someone's’ mind but it also helps you with other psychic skills like clairvoyance, telepathy, extreme empathy, healing, channeling...The list goes on. Basically, visualization is for spirituality what the the bicep curl is for fitness: There is a reason why so many people practice it.


3. Calm your mind

When we relax and quiet the unnecessary voices in our mind, we lower our brain waves and are more susceptible to receiving information from higher sources. Sounds very airy-fairy, but it makes a lot of sense. Scientific research shows us that when we find ourselves in a deeply relaxed state, our subconscious mind becomes dominant over our conscious mind when it comes to receiving information. The goal is to escape the beta brain-wave state, in which we usually find ourselves during the day.

4. raise your vibration


Now that we have a calm mind, we want to raise our vibrations to be more capable of picking up on intuitive clues and visions coming from the person we are trying to read. In short, raising your vibrations to a more high-vibrational energy can be done through repeating a mantra over and over again. I would suggest to try the following: After having calmed your mind properly, meditate on the mantra “love” or “peace”. Any one word which is sure to raise your vibrations into a higher state will work here. Repeating this word for a couple of minutes and truly embodying and tuning into its vibration will get your own vibrations up tremendously. Raising our vibrations is key in order to pick up on the energy that is given off by the person we are trying to understand better through telepathy and mind-reading.

5. Use intuition and don’t guess


Be open to whatever intuitive message comes to you: Be it something you absolutely didn’t expect or something you don’t believe to be true: Trust your intuition over your logical reasoning. As our beloved Albert Einstein put so wonderfully:


“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”


Do not turn this into a logical exercise: “The last time I saw this person, she was feeling emotion X. Therefore, She will probably still feel emotion X.” That is not mind reading, that is just guessing. Clear your mind of thought and embrace any feeling or signal that comes your way. Sometimes the clues you pick up on won’t make much sense. For example, when I was trying to understand a friends’ thoughts better to help her cope with negative emotions, I picked up a lot of clues on a random face of a young man. Initially, this didn’t make any sense to me and I didn’t see how this person had anything to do with my friends’ negative feelings. Later, however, I learned that my friend was in love with this person and her negativity was the result of her feelings not being appreciated by this guy. Shortly put: Trust your intuition and don’t judge your visions.

6. Believe and consistency


Here is a crucial step to get down: Believe in your own capabilities of reading someone else's mind, even if you have never done so before.


“With our thoughts we make the world.”

-Siddharta Gautama Buddha


If you don’t believe in your capacity to pull this off, chances are you will turn this mind-reading session into a self-fulfilling prophecy: You won’t believe you can do it, so you actually won't be able to do it. Your logical mind will get in the way of harnessing your intuitive instinct and you will fail to pick up on any clues. That is why it is so crucial to calm your mind before engaging in virtually any spiritual practice.


“If you think you can you're right, if you think you can't you're right.”

-Henry Ford


Another important component to succeeding here is consistency. Chances are you won't be able to read someone's mind the very first time you try. or the second, or the third. Do not be discouraged by this, it is perfectly normal. That is why consistently trying is key. meditate and work on opening your third eye every day and the results will follow.

Good luck my friends on your journey of understanding others in a more profound way and reading their mind.
